Here’s how the Brentford players rated in their 3-2 win at home to Middlesbrough.

David Raya – 7

Made a number of saves to keep Brentford in the game. A good all round game by the Spaniard.

Henrik Dalsgaard – 7

The stand-in captain led from the back. Did well defensively, whilst getting forward to link up with Mbeumo in attack.

Julian Jeanvier – 7

A great performance from the Guinea international who rounded this off with his first goal of the season.

Ethan Pinnock – 7

Has formed a good partnership with Jeanvier at the back for the Bees. Rarely put a foot wrong defensively today.  

Rico Henry – 7

The youngster is proving to be a real talent for Brentford. The pacey-full back combined well with Benrahma as he has done all season.

Mathias Jensen – 7

Decent performance from the Dane who linked up well with the Brentford front three.

Christian Nørgaard – 7

Orchestrated the play in front of the back four. Impressive defensive display gave Dasilva and Jensen the license to get forward and join in with the Brentford front three.  

Joshua Dasilva – 7

The box-to-box player is a real driving force in the Brentford midfield. It is difficult to see why Arsenal let him go. At 21, it is fair to say that the player has a bright future ahead of him.

Bryan Mbeumo – 8

Took a while for him to get into the game. Playing out on the wing, he was isolated at times in the first half. But the Frenchman grew into the game. He’s lightening quick and bagged himself his 12th league goal of the season.

Ollie Watkins – 8

Another great game for the Bee’s striker. He is is quick, strong and illusive. His late winner was his 20th league goal of the season, making him a strong contender for the golden boot. It is hard to see Brentford being able to keep hold of the player, especially if they don’t make it to the Premier League.

Said Benrahma – 8

A real handful for Middlesbrough, as he has been for most Championship defences all season. His dribbling and passing ability as well as his speed meant that Boro struggled to contain him at times. When he wants to be, he can be sometimes be unplayable at this level. It comes as no surprise that a number of top clubs are after the player.


Emiliano Marcondes – 6

Only featured in the final stages of the game, but looked dangerous when he came on as he did against Leicester in the last round of the FA Cup.

Mads Roerslev – 6

Cameo appearance in the last minute of the game.
